Just Add Ink 279
I was browsing Sketch Challenges this week and the one at Just Add Ink took my eye. So I used their sketch to create this Christmas Card using the Christmas Cuties stamp set. I embossed Real Red card using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Smoky Slate card. I rounded two corners on a piece of Designer Series Paper from the Merry Moments Designer Series Paper Stack using the Project Life Corner Rounder Punch. I rounded two corners on a piece of Old Olive card using the same punch and attached it over the bottom of the Designer Series paper. I stamped the image onto Whisper White card using Basic Black Archival ink. I coloured the image using a Blender Pen and the following inks – Old Olive, Real Red, Pink Pirouette, Hello Honey and Basic Gray. I cut the image using a die from the Circles Collection Framelits Die but I had to fussy cut one of his feet first so that I didn’t have to use a die that was too big. I attached the image to the card front using dimensionals. I stamped the greeting from the Happy Seasons stamp set onto Whisper White card using Real Red ink. I punched the image using the Washi Label Punch before attaching it over the Old Olive card. The finishing touch was to punch small circles from Gold Glimmer Paper using the Cupcake Builder Punch to place over the stamped baubles on the collar and the hat of the cute little elf. Inside the card I added a narrow strip of Real Red card behind one long edge of the same Designer Series Paper and just to add a little something extra I stamped the two bauble images from the Among The Branches stamp set, one using Real Red and the other using Old Olive ink.
Cute isn’t it? Despite the fact that “colouring- in” is not my favourite thing to do I am having fun with this stamp set. If you haven’t got this set, maybe you should take another look.
Bye for now,
